Search by CommentedOnBy?

Is there a way to do a search of tickets to see which tickets a given person
has commented on?

Under ‘Reports’, you can choose ‘Advance Ticket Search’ which should call on
freeside/rt/Search/Build.html depending on how you’ve got your RT set up.

After this (I find) it’s easier to click over ‘Advanced’, beside Edit Search
and Calendar; then just enter your search terms. If I wanted to search for
all tickets CommentedOnBy myself, I’d write:

CommentedOnBy = ‘kris’ AND LastUpdated = ‘today’ where ‘kris’ is the rtuser
id and LastUpdated is the date you wish to search. A bit hazy on the date
format though, I believe it’s unixtimestamp based.

Additionally, CommentedOnBy = ‘kris’, would pull up ALL comments by user
’kris’ from the history of your RT installation until the second you clicked
’Show Report’ J

Also, a wider search would be 'LastUpdatedBy in which would would replace
CommentedOnBy with this and it would pull up status changes, comments,
replies, etc. for a specific user, or for all users chronologically.

That’s close I think, but not quite what I’m looking for. I couldn’t get
your line to work… although I could see how it’s not exactly what they’re
looking for. They want to search for everything a particular user has
commented on on the current day. That would potentially show things a user
had commented on in a previous day, and another person had commented on
today.On Mon, Jan 3, 2011 at 5:01 PM, Kris Germann kris_germann@295.ca wrote:

CommentedOnBy is not a valid RT 3.8 search term
The search you’re trying to build goes against Transactions and would
require code.

Kevin,

Which installation is this specific to? I am running RT Ver 3.8.8 (On
Freeside 2.1.2cvs) and my terms of CommentedOnBy = ‘user1’ LastUpdatedOn =
‘today’ appear to work fine… Or is it something more specific.

Thanks

Kris

Sounds like you have custom code

I hate to necro an old, dead thread but… this seems to have come up again…
from two separate people. I did figure out if I edited the advanced section
and added CommentedOnBy I could at least see who the last person was to
comment on a ticket, but here’s my current problem:

Helpdesk manager person has some software that spits out how many calls a
given worker does, and wants to compare this with the RT records. For
example, Worker A takes 54 calls in a night. Helpdesk manager person wants
to check the RT records to see if he has made 54 comments for that given
night. Kind of a making sure ppl are doing what they’re supposed to be
doing.

So sometime before the end of the month, I need to figure out a way to form
a query to show all comments in a given month. Maybe not “show” them, but
just a list to say… Worker A commented on the following tickets this
month.

Does anybody have any suggestions where I could start with something like
this?On Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 9:56 AM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.comwrote:

Chris,

We do something similar to Payam. We have an Oracle DataBase so we created a
"view" of the RT data to allow us to use COGNOS (or other reporting
software) to create reports from RT data. Works great.

RT’s user-exposed queries are written in TicketSQL, not SQL. TicketSQL
is a SQL-like DSL to describe tickets you want to find. TicketSQL
doesn’t search for transactions, only tickets, so you can’t express your
SQL query in TicketSQL. http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/TicketSQL

To show the results of your SQL below in RT, you’d need to modify the
query to use the DBIx::SearchBuilder API and then display the results.

Sorry for the ignorance here, but I’m trying to muddle my way through this.
I’ve installed DBIx::SearchBuilder via cpan and I’ve made a copy of the
Results.html found in /opt/rt3/share/html/Search, and called it
Results_custom.html. I’ve put the following code in:

use DBIx::SearchBuilder::Handle;

my $handle = DBIx::SearchBuilder::Handle->new();

$handle->Connect(
Driver => ‘mysql’,
Database => ‘rt3’,
Host => ‘localhost’,
User => ‘rt_user’,
Password => ‘abcd1234’
);

my ($title, $ticketcount);
$session{‘i’}++;
$session{‘tickets’} = RT::Tickets->new($session{‘CurrentUser’}) ;
$session{‘tickets’}->$handle->FetchResult(“select
Transactions.id,ObjectType,ObjectId,Type,Transactions.Created,Name,EmailAddress
from Transactions inner join Users on Users.id=Transactions.Creator where
ObjectType=‘RT::Ticket’ and Type=‘Comment’ and
Transactions.Created>=‘2011-02-04 01:00:00’ and
Transactions.Created<=‘2011-02-07 23:59:00’;”);

in place of:

my ($title, $ticketcount);
$session{‘i’}++;
$session{‘tickets’} = RT::Tickets->new($session{‘CurrentUser’}) ;
$session{‘tickets’}->FromSQL($Query) if ($Query);

to try to force a query, but it seems to return no results. I can’t seem to
find a place to troubleshoot this from, so it’s kinda like shooting in the
dark. I was hoping maybe somebody could give me a little insight as to
where I’m mis-stepping. Again, sorry about all the trouble and questions
about this.On Mon, Feb 21, 2011 at 11:59 AM, Thomas Sibley trs@bestpractical.comwrote:

This seems the wrong way to go about it. Also, DBIx::SearchBuilder is
required for RT, so I’d assume you have it installed already.

I’d build a portlet in local/html/Elements that makes an RT::Tickets
object (which is a DBIx::SearchBuilder object) and calls Limit to
build the queries you want and then passes the result to
CollectionList.

You can add that portlet to your HomepageComponents and add it to your
front page like any other search once you get there.

You may want to take apart the other portlets in HomepageCOmponents to
get an idea of what is going on.

 RT's user-exposed queries are written in TicketSQL, not SQL. TicketSQL
 is a SQL-like DSL to describe tickets you want to find. TicketSQL
 doesn't search for transactions, only tickets, so you can't express your
 SQL query in TicketSQL. [2]http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/TicketSQL

 To show the results of your SQL below in RT, you'd need to modify the
 query to use the DBIx::SearchBuilder API and then display the results.

The problem is, I’m not strong enough in sql and perl to whip that out. I
understand the HomepageComponents, I’ve added a couple, and I can edit
usually to suit my needs, but I can’t just whip out a portlet. Not sure how
to proceed.On Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 1:17 PM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.comwrote:

TicketSQL

 is a SQL-like DSL to describe tickets you want to find. TicketSQL
 doesn't search for transactions, only tickets, so you can't express

your

 SQL query in TicketSQL. [2]

http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/TicketSQL

 To show the results of your SQL below in RT, you'd need to modify

the

 query to use the DBIx::SearchBuilder API and then display the

results.

Subject: Re: [rt-users] search by CommentedOnBy?

I hate to necro an old, dead thread but… this seems to have
come up again…
from two separate people. I did figure out if I edited the
advanced section
and added CommentedOnBy I could at least see who the last
person was to
comment on a ticket, but here’s my current problem:

Helpdesk manager person has some software that spits out how
many calls a
given worker does, and wants to compare this with the RT
records. For
example, Worker A takes 54 calls in a night. Helpdesk manager
person wants
to check the RT records to see if he has made 54 comments for
that given
night. Kind of a making sure ppl are doing what they’re
supposed to be
doing.

So sometime before the end of the month, I need to figure out a
way to form
a query to show all comments in a given month. Maybe not "show"
them, but
just a list to say… Worker A commented on the following
tickets this
month.

Does anybody have any suggestions where I could start with
something like
this?
